"I knew I wanted to create a few different scenes that would be displayed in frames," she says. "Using the frames as a size guide, I started layering my cut-outs, playing with composition and picking out colour schemes."
Accurate cutting out takes patience and practice, so Aimee advises starting with easy shapes first, especially if you're new to using a craft knife.
"I make crepe paper flowers, so I have fringing scissors which are tiny and really sharp – perfect for this project. I started by cutting out the simplest shapes first, working with both scissors and a craft knife," she says.
"The benefit of using a craft knife over scissors is that you can keep the outline as well as the actual cut-out shape, provided that your cuts are neat. I did this with the silver birch outlines and it inspired a whole new piece – the family tree," she says.
